Hello, I recently received a Lenovo ThinkCentre M57p 6073, refurbished, as a gift. It has an integrated graphics card atm, but I would like to upgrade it to something decent so I can play games on it. However the case is just too small to fit anything.

I ordered a Radeon 6670 low profile card and its still too big to fit. Are there any cards that would work or am I just out of luck?

What is too big? The height or the Length?
If it is the height, the lowest possible is low profile, but the Length depends of the vendor and the PCB.

Hope it helps! :)

That's an ITX case. Don't bother. Even if you get one to fit, you'll still have heat problems...

Specifically which Radeon 6670 did you get? If it is in fact low-profile ready, did you remove the standard height bracket (and VGA port) and replace it with the low-profile bracket? Did you get a single slot card where the heat sink does not extend further out that the width of the bracket?
